Dislike for a Certain Mouse

“Hey, kids!
Who’s ready to meet Mickey now?
You sure?
Great!
Just step on up here and give him
A big, great Disney World hug
Now, smile!”

My god!
Is anyone else sick of Mickey Mouse?
Sick of his annoying white gloves,
his stupid red pants,
his ridiculous yellow shoes,
and his unnaturally raised eyebrows?

You pay over eighty dollars
just to have the bittersweet realization
that the “Mickey Mouse” you just hugged
is a 30 year old dressed in a costume?
I mean, dear lord!
Families save up for years just to have their child
hug a stranger?
I find it ridiculous!
Overpriced, overrated, overcrowded
That’s Disney World

I guess people could say I have a certain “dislike”
for one annoying mouse
whose logo is made up of three circles
and constantly shoved down your throat

Yes, yes, I know
It’s such a tragedy
But, I’m certainly not paying over eighty dollars
to hug a stranger
Yeah, that’s right-
I dislike Mickey Mouse
